Entangle

My cable t.v. has more channels than I can count; same for sat/radio. After flipping in frustration, I quickly move on to something productive. It appears that the enemy has conspired to keep our minds busy, majoring in minors. Christ Jesus in Matt.13:22 explains the "sower" parable; "the thorns,  and the care of this world, and the deceitfulness of riches, choke the Word, and he becometh unfruitful".       2Tim.2:4 No man that warreth entangleth himself with the affairs of this life.                                           Entangle is used in Matt.22:15, Gal.5:1, and 2Peter2:20. it is to entwine, to trap,ensnare.                        What is a good way to Not get caught up in the diversions of this world? 2Tim2:5 Study[be diligent] to shew[present] thyself approved unto God[The Lord], a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the Word of Truth.

  1. 2Tim.2:15 will also help us deal with the "wiles" of the Prince of Darkness[Ephes.6]. We saw how it was applied in the Garden, and with the temptation of Christ.We see it with the Pharisses and Scribes:aka the traditions of men. In the early 1900s the term used was modern/mordernism. Then the word changed to progressive/progress. Tomorrow it will be something else as a way to keep the world moving. Ephes. 6:11-take a stand.

  2. "Know the Truth, and the Truth will make you free". Don't know the Truth = bondage. This is the objective of the enemy, which results in Idol worship.? Money,houses, and cars are made from items that come from the earth; we are to have dominion over the earth, but end up at a worship service for Idols, vs the Creator.
